Back in March, we interviewed Misha Nonoo‘s assistant Grace Hwang, and she told us no one wears jeans in the office. Surprise! Nonoo has changed her tune and introduced jeans for Resort, and we can’t wait to get our hands on her takes on denim. The collection included denim skirts, denim dresses, and a pair of wide-leg jeans that we imagine will be flying off the racks. The entirety of the collection, including the photo shoot, was inspired by artist Judith Eisler‘s solo exhibition, “Close-Ups & Two Shots”.
The blurred images of females by Eisler inspired the converging graphic lines on pieces like a knit sweater dress and menswear inspirations took form in wide leg trousers, crepe jumpsuits, and dresses and jumpsuits fashioned after vests. Even with her newfound love for denim, there is always an underlying sense of sophistication in Nonoo’s collections, which is why she can take elements of the ’70s trend and make it distinctly her own.
